WA #386 Hexahedron

This week I learned that a "hexahedron" is a solid figure with six faces. This particular hexahedron is an irregular shape made from six right triangles.

Comments and critiques are always welcomed.

Update: slight tweak to colors

Fantastic idea and presentation. The lighting is so well done. I love the triangle shadow.

Fantastic! I really like how it has many sides but the shadow being a triangle. Beautiful light and execution.

Fantastic, love it! The colours are great. The only thing that I say slightly spoils it is the pattern on the underside: if it was a uniform colour it would be great: can you blur it?

Thanks for all the wonderful comments!

This was a fun project for me. These days I don't have much money to spend on my hobbies, so I have to make do with what I have around the house.....here is the rundown for this project.

1. Subject - I got a book called "geo-gami" for christmas...sort of 3-D geometric origami for geeks. The hexahedron is on page 2....this was my second attempt...the first one was stolen by the cat when I wasn't looking.

2. Setup - The hexahedron is suspended from a homemade PVC pipe scaffold using a stick pin and a piece of thread.

3. Background - Beneath the hexahedron is an old dry-erase white board. It is fairly reflective. There is also a piece of white construction paper behind the hexahedron.

4. Lighting - From the lower left is a flourescent/ultraviolet "black" light that I got free when I purchased an industrial size bottle of "pet stain and odor remover" (please don't ask for more details....). From above right is a "home depot" work light with a 25W bulb clamped onto the PVC structure.

5. Color - Mix of exposure and a slightly unconventional white balance gave me the interesting coloring. I tried to avoid doing too much post processing.

I'm impressed both at the preparations and the final pic. That is, I'm very impressed.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Thanks for the suggestion. I made a slight tweak to reduce the prominence of the "grid lines" on the surface.

If you can make another photographer ask "how'd the hell did you shoot that?" then you've done an exceptional job.

so...

How'd the hell you do that? (and thanks for the explanation)...

Best of luck!
